Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from A. M. Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from A. M. Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.
